Raised beds

This year I am going to try raised beds, mainly because i had such trouble with weeding and keeping grass away from the edges of my beds last year. Hopefully they will become 'no-dig' beds a la Bob Flowerdew.
As you can see from the picture below i have not filled it to the top with compost as i will be mixing it with topsoil when it has settled a bit. The plastic mesh is to stop the cat from going to the toilet in it. I have more to make (because one isn't enough - 7ft x 3.5ft), hopefully this weekend but so much time seems to be taken up with building the house at the minute I never seem to get an hour to myself.

This second picture is of a bed from last year 'converted' into a sort of semi raised bed. I planted my garlic in there a few weeks back so it should be resting nicely in there. Its not yet finished because I made it with scrap wood I had lying around and i haven't found a piece for the other end yet :) donmcfeely@gmail.com

With loft beds, the bed is elevated on a platform with space left underneath for living, working, or playing. Bunk beds work on the same principal, but with another bed underneath the top bunk. .Find out more about locker loft bed

Very nice, neat beds. It's good to use wood to edge as it doesn't get damaged. I used plastic edging the first time around (because it was cheap) and I have spent a lot of time fixing it back in place and picking up the broken bits that have been trampled!
